The San Rafael Police Department had a very successful K9 program for over 20 years, but was eliminated in 2003 due to budget constraints. The men and women of SRPD have formed the K9 Association in an effort to rebuild the program solely through fundraising. Contributions from the community and the San Rafael Police K9 Association funded the purchase of two German Shepherds – Ares and Faro. All proceeds from this event will go to the care, training and maintenance of the K9s. The tickets and donations for this event are tax deductable.

What Happened to Al Jazeera English?

You may have noticed that starting August 20th Al Jazera English programming disappeared from our schedule. This is due to the launch of the Al Jazeera America Network and various cable operator agreements in regards to carriage elsewhere. To watch Al Jazeera's new channel, check your local listings, they're taking over channels currently broadcasting Current TV, or visit http://america.aljazeera.com/

In Marin you can see the Al Jazeera America Network on Comcast 107 if you have the digital 'enhanced' package. Satellite subscribers will find the channel at DIRECTV Channel 358 and DISH Network Channel 215. AT&T U-verse and Time Warner customers are out of luck as both systems have refused to carry the new Al Jazeera channel. If you watched Al Jazeera's live web streams in the past, you will now need to be a cable or DBS subscriber to access those streams.

Watch the Leadership Studies Lecture series on Marin TV

If you missed any of the Leadership Lecture Series events, don't fret, you can now watch them on Wednesday evenings at 8:00 P.M, Repeats Thursdays at 10:00 A.M. on the Marin TV Education Channel (Comcast 30, AT&T U-Verse 99).

Tell the FCC to Protect Disaster Victims and Ensure Effective Phone Service for All

The advocacy organization Public Knowledge is running a petition campaign requesting that the FCC prevent Verizon from replacing reliable land lines with only "VoiceLink" wireless service in areas damaged by Hurricane Sandy.

To quote PK: "Disaster victims should not be guinea pigs for experiments in new phone service. In the wake of Hurricane Sandy last October, Verizon decided that instead of rebuilding its traditional phone lines, the company is replacing them with something called a "fixed wireless service."
